    I saw a couple of pages and this one made me roar with laughter. I love the panicked look on Grandpa’s face. Very sweet and very, very funny!

    I love the Captain Kangaroo comments – my dad bears a striking resemblance to him too! I think this photo is really sweet and funny. 🙂

  11. Joyce says:

    This is one of the cutest, loveliest pics I’ve ever seen on here…and I usually feel like I’m drowning in a sea of goo when I see cute!

  12. Laura says:

    His face is HILARIOUS! That expression is priceless!!

  13. Jen says:

    awkward pose, but really cute! Lucky man.

  14. lizzie says:

    Do I see a couple sets of twins here?
    Too cute, not awkward at all.

  15. Jeff says:

    The crew, unable to find the box of ping-pong balls, improvised and instead dumped a load of children on Cap’n Kangaroo’s head.

      I love this comment. I was just thinking about leaving a comment about this poor grandpa’s resemblance to Cap’n Kangaroo and you beat me to it. The ping-pong ball running gag on the show was a classic. Too bad he doesn’t have a pair of green jeans on.

    • Modine says:

      Good one. Now where is Mr. Moose and Bunny Rabbit?

  16. Mama of 4 says:

    I have two thoughts after looking at the picture. First, Grandpa is one of the luckiest and most blessed men in the world. And secondly, he must have been a really good Dad himself to his own children. Or else his now-grown children wouldn’t go to the trouble to share their babies with him. What goes around really does come around.

    cute pic! and amazing that all their eyes are open and they’re all looking in the correct direction at the same time. that would NEVER happen in my family!

  18. carol says:

    My ex knew a guy who was raising six boys alone. The mom couldn’t handle all the rowdiness and up and left them. Sad, but this photo reminded me of that.

  19. M.G. says:

    So that’s what happened to Captain Kangaroo!

  20. Ida_Slaptem says:

    He’s the newest superhero… ‘POSSUM MAN!

  21. Ohmy says:

    The blur hurts my eyes . What is that? A copy of a copy of a copy?

  22. jlouise says:

    That is a seriously sweet picture!

  23. Grace says:

    awkward but cute

  24. janette says:

    thats a great pic…i luv it…soo sweet 🙂

  25. WRCathcart says:

    Grampa looks like Captain Kangaroo with all his little ‘grand-joeys’

  26. Nautius Maximus says:

    He’s outnumbered 6 to 1. And out cuted. He doesn’t have a chance. 🙂

  27. Mary Pat says:

    I think the two little boys holding onto grampas legs might actually be trying to prop him up and balance him…’dont let grammpy fall’….says mama, from the side frame…

  28. Stacy says:

    that kid at the bottom is trouble.

  29. YoBimbo says:

    Was anybody else reminded of “Children of the Corn”?

  30. Micacamcam says:

    Is it just me, or does he look concerned that he could possibly trip or drop one of the babies?

  31. kris10 says:

    Grandpa looks a little ackward holding the babies, but it’s actually really sweet that he wanted to take a picture with the grandkids.

  32. Susan says:

    I LOVE this picture! And I gotta say there was no fooling around in that clan… they are all spitting images of grandpa.

  33. Don says:

    Bobby was given an A+ for this creative demo in his Genealogy project.

  34. threerivers says:

    sweetest picture evah.

  35. leena says:

    I so love this picture!!! My daddy loved his grandbabies with all his heart!

  36. Leslie says:

    Ok at first I though “AWW! Grandpa is holding both his grandkids!!” and then I scrolled down some more and said “Wait there’s two more! But that’s still cute!” Then a scrolled some more and said “Another one???” and then I scrolled some more and said “HOLY CRAP!!! POOR GRANDPA!!!! SIX KIDS! YIKES!”

  37. Debra says:

    awww…what beautiful children, and loving grandpa. Not sure what the heck the photographer was thinking with a pose like that, but ….well….you get the picture….

  38. Sara says:

    Grandpa does indeed look a little anxious there! But otherwise the picture is adorable.

  39. anns says:

    Having grown-up without the love of grandparents, I really envy those kids. But I am sure the loving grandpa is getting smothered with baby love too!
